Animal Crossing Tips and Tricks

Animal Crossing is a popular game for fans of Nintendo. The latest update on the game has been a mobile app available for free on both Android and iOS, and for eagerly awaiting fans, the next move for the Animal Crossing franchise is going to be a Nintendo Switch game. If you’re new to Animal Crossing and want to play the game’s earlier installments of the game or play the mobile version, or even if you’re an Animal Crossing expert, there are a few tips and tricks you should be aware of. This game is more than just cute animals, and whether you play Animal Crossing on your game console or your mobile phone, there are a few tips and tricks you could use in both versions to help you thrive in the Animal Crossing world and get the most out of the game.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp

Pocket Camp is a spin-off mobile version of Animal Crossing that lets you run your own campsite. Just as with the regular Animal Crossing games, you can decorate your avatar, camper, and campgrounds, befriend the animal villagers around the nearby areas, collect items and craft goods, and more! Even though it’s a mobile version of the game, it’s still just as intricate and offers lots of opportunities to utilize some tricks to help you advance in the game. 

One thing you could do is sell the special fruit your trees at Lost Lure Creek produce. Each player gets two trees that grow unique fruit such as grapes, lemons, or lychee, and not every player gets the same fruit. Selling the unique fruit you get in your market lets other people who don’t have that fruit in their game purchase it for quests and you could make a good profit by jacking up the price if they’re desperate enough. Another thing you could do to further yourself in the game is craft items while at work or school. Some items take up to 16 hours to craft, other around 5-6 hours, so it’s a good idea to leave them crafting when you can’t play so when you come back to the game, you’ll have new crafted item. 

The last tip I’ll recommend for you is to always keep a stockpile of 10 of each fruit, fish, bugs, and shells. Doing this will help you fulfill the animals’ requests that you come across in the game quicker, and you should also keep a random selection of flowers for when it’s requested from you. 

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The game most people know and love in regards to Animal Crossing is New Leaf, the series installment where you can take on the role as mayor of your village filled with cute, talking animals. Made for the 3DS, this game has been beloved by fans of the franchise for as long as it’s been out. If you’re still playing New Leaf or are about to begin in preparation for the newest series installment, here are a couple of hacks you could use in the game. 

First off, make sure to bang a rock every day with your shovel. Each day a new rock will contain a precious stone, and one will contain thousands of bells. Trees also hold items like bells and furniture that you can shake to get. Another helpful tip for extra storage space is to use letters as inventory slots. You’re technically only given 16, but letters can hold presents, which can be whatever you want them to be. Putting stuff you don’t use often, but could need in, in letters is a smart way of keeping things without using up storage space.
